The Bethany School Computer Lab is a state of the art classroom. The lab is always up-to-date with new Apple Macintosh computers purchased every three years. Our goal is for students to become
comfortable and at ease using technology to enhance all aspects of their lives. Skills and concepts that students learn in the lab can be used in academic classes or at home no matter which computer system is being used. Mr. Bruce collaborates with teachers across the disciplines to make lessons pertinent and exciting. Mr. Bruce is very passionate about Apple and his enthusiasm spills over into the classroom.
